It's been a while since I updated this, and man had the garden grown.

The corn is as tall as I am, and it's already started putting out tassels. Fresh corn is not far off. The tomatoes have grown together and created two tomato thickets, and the various squashes and gourds are putting out fruit. It's nice, real nice. In sadder news, the alaskan and snow peas have had their run and it's gotten hot enough that the plants are starting to die. Rather than leave them to linger on for a few more weeks, the wive harvested everything off of them, and pulled them. There are other things that need the room in the garden.

What you might ask, several beautiful eggplants from our local Amish community, and some green chili peppers.

The potatoes have flowered, and fruited, and just need a little bit longer before being pulled.

Picked up some discount plants at a recent sale, including a Japanese Banana. The thing has gone from just over a foot tall to three foot tall with leaves as long as my arm. The fruit of the banana isn't edible, but the leaves are well suited to use in cooking. I have some friends who are super into Tiki and the polynesian culture, so I have a plan to make a luau pig in the crock pot. I'm going to season and marinate a chunk of pig with soy, ginger, and brown sugar, wrap it in banana leaves and slow cook it maybe even overnight in the slow cooker. I think it will be close to the magic of cooking a pig in the ground.

Okay, it's time for me to do some organisation work for my workpile given my new dedication to retro complete all quest except for Steampunk and To the Stars. I've grouped past quests into roughly 4 groups in order of how likely a submission would be to emerge for it:

Outgoing Next (6)
Quest - Villains: a character from an abandoned novel that hasn't been posted anywhere
Quest - The Shards of the Storm: a vase that can predict the onset of storm taking inspiration from one of my Chinese mythical lifeform entries, a drum made from the hide of a single-footed cow creature who had swallowed a shard and so this drum can make a sound like thunder....
Quest - Into the Dungeon: Tangrams (Seven Piece puzzles of Chinese origin)
Quest - Tattoos: A female mage-spy whose tattoo changes colour and where different colour tones correspond to different musical notes that serve as codes
Quest - NPCs- will merge this with one of the sub. for the Spouse Challenge
Quest- Zombies (the apocalyptic kind): A class of high level zombies who has awakened one powerful primitive emotional instincts besides feeding (different types)
 
Emerging from the nebulous (6) (i.e. either substantial work but underlying idea complete or one aspect stuck and rest ready to go)
Quest - Sounds of War: diary entry/mind probe of a semi-diety about the motivation of the Divinity War
Quest - Fire: A treatise on Nether Flames (aka Ghost Fires): different colour of flames and association with different types of ghosts
Quest - Monstrous Monsters: A monster who can take host within an item/lifeform. Consequently, the host can have two forms, one normal and one 'changed' by the monster (a bit stuck on the fear aspect)
Quest - Let there be Light: A sword called the Shadow Bearer, inspiration from a mythical Chinese sword whose blade is invisible (I thought I will say this ability is cos it interacts with light in a certain way or sth)
Quest- Summer Doldrum: Strolenati Guild v2 5in1
Quest- Art quest: A stone elemental from another plane (who was mistaken as a demon) and his adventures when he materialised in front of a church

In the nebulous (6)
Quest - Legendary People: The First Sister for the Crunalan society, legendary figure for my stalled novel 
Quest - 20,000 feet under the Sea: A sunken city in the Dragon Empire (link up with Xie Tse of the 9 off-spring sub)
Quest - Kaiju and Giant Monsters (from the 9-offspring sub):
•   Mountainous continent made up of the dead bodies of two Kaijus
•   Sunken continent that is the domain of a Kaiju
Quest - Oceanic: the Oceanic equivalent of the Silk Road? Another option is to write about the Sea now separating the Sundered continents that was originally part of Zia for my Dragon Empire setting
Quest- Winter: The Everwinter Realm with sub-locales reflecting different characteristics of Winter (came about due to mad ice wizard)
Quest - Fallen Empires: A sub. written from the perspective of someone after the Sundering of Zia (in my Dragon Empire setting), abt... the History of the Dragon Empire?

No ideas yet (4)
Quest - Unspeakable Horrors
Quest - The Character
Quest - Five in One
Quest - Five Room Dungeon

Nearly forgot to mention: my goal now is to do 1 quest sub per month on avg. I did 2 quest subs this month so I might slack off for July. I've got a backload of writing projects on the clean-out plus I now want to start another bunch of Chinese articles that are just straight translations like the Chinese lifeforms codex....

Next up is Prostitute. You've got your classic prostitutes and your hookers with hearts of gold, but I'm thinking there are more places to go with these people.
